About This Item

Pulitzer prize-winning editorial cartoonist with the "Chicago Tribune" (1903-45). Original signed ink drawing, 14½" X 18", n.p., n.d. Very good. Slight edgewear and minor soiling. Untitled six-panel cartoon whose theme seems to be the improvement of cities. Each of the three left-side panels contrasts its right-side counterpart. Top left panel addresses unsanitary conditions by depicting an early "horseless carriage" under repair while a team of horses watches in amusement; top right panel shows a surprised horse reading a notice outside a city limits that reads, "Notice! Horses, sheep cattle and hogs not allowed within the city limits." Middle left panel addresses temperance by depicting a busy street filled with bars and men entering each, while middle right panel shows a street with a gas station, soft drink stand and movie theatre. Bottom left panel addresses proper housing by depicting a freight train chugging along on weedy, ugly tracks, while the bottom right panel shows the same boxcars transformed into cute little homes and their tracks quaint little front yards being tended by proud homeowners. A charming piece of social commentary. Signed simply "McCutcheon" at lower right, as usual.
